She added the U.K. navy will deploy the Sea Wasp to assist in harbor search missions and counter-underwater IED and mine threat operations.

The British navy has invited the U.S. Navy and other industry, academia and defense partners to test new unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles and unmanned surface vehicles during the Unmanned Warrior event.

Unmanned Warrior is a multinational event designed to showcase the latest maritime autonomous technological developments of roughly 40 companies and organizations selected by the U.K. navy.
